How do I configure my branch office Win2k server as a router for routing between the LAN and ISDN co

At the corporate level, we have live IP addresses for direct Internet access. Some of these addresses have been assigned to the branch office connected with the main office using an ISDN line. From the main office, the IP has been reserved for ISDN dial-up connection. I want to know how to configure my branch office Win2k server as a router for routing between the LAN and ISDN connection. I did enable the routing and remote access for the server to act as router, but it didn't work.

RRAS should be sufficient to accomplish this, however, configuring this type of routing requires a skill set that most system administrators lack. I wrote a book covering the basics of routing specifically for systems administrators, and specifically configuring RRAS in Windows NT. There weren't too many changes between Windows NT and Windows 2000, so it may be enough to get you running. The book is now available for free online here.
